Our Story

Inspire people to dream.

That’s where The Link of Cullman County began: with a vision to inspire our Cullman County neighbors living in poverty to dream. Our Founder wanted to encourage the homeless, the struggling single-mom, the addict, and the under-educated that God had more for them.

With a vision from God to connect resources and people, our Founder, Dawn Owens reached out to community members, school leadership, church staffs, and other non-profits to create programs and services that not only came alongside those in poverty but did so in a relationship-building way.

Over time that has morphed into a transformational ministry that loves people right where they are at, no matter what their circumstances, beliefs, or economic status is in order to help them overcome the barriers of poverty.

Our desire as a faith-based non-profit is to help people grow out of poverty through encouragement, education, and employability training. 

Now everything we do to love our neighbor flows out of these three key areas. We currently serve our community in 23 different locations with 18 programs and services throughout the year.
